Syrian economic policy under fire

Published March 13th, 2001 - 02:00 GMT

Syrian leadership has commissioned a report assessing of the performance of Prime Minister Mustafa Miro’s serving government. The planning ministry was assigned to prepare the detailed account and evaluation of the government’s economic activity.  


The report criticizes Syrian financial, monetary and taxation systems and stresses the importance of restructuring local economy. According to the Saudi daily Al-Watan, it highlighted the absence of a clear strategic financial policy, which results in reduced investments. The report also observed the drawbacks of Syrian tourism development policies.  


As a new generation takes over the Syrian leadership, specialists consider this move a sign of possible future changes or reshuffling of Syria’s presently serving government. — (MEBG-Albawaba)
